Pete Doherty and Ghostpoet will be headlining the Calling Out stage at the 2016 Kendal Calling festival, joining the previously announced Blossoms.

It’s the latest solo task for Doherty despite his ongoing return to The Libertines and last year’s ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth‘ LP as he prepares his own new album for release and more solo gigs in the UK next month. At the moment, he’s also scheduled to play the first show at a refurbished, reopened Paris Bataclan in November.

The Sherlocks, Slow Readers Club, The Jacques, Fizzy Blood and The Bulletproof Bomb are some more new names at the festival, which is held at Lowther Deer Park in the Lake District between July 28th–31st.

Noel Gallagher will be topping the event 20 years to the week since his era-defining shows with Oasis at Knebworth and Loch Lomond.

“My first gig in a field was Loch Lomond watching Oasis twenty years ago,” Kendal Calling founder Ben Robinson said. “That moment defined my youth and calling in the years to follow.”

“Noel’s songwriting has soundtracked the lives of millions over the last two decades; it’s with great pride that we’re able to bring those anthems and his new hits to the fields of Kendal Calling.”
